Bat speed is everything

Increase your bat speed & add to your throwing velocity.

How the 2 Knob Trainer Bat(2KT)

The patent pending 2 Knob trainer has been recently developed as an additional way to increase throwing velocity and bat speed safely and effectively. Expanding on research from the Rod Dedeaux Research & Baseball Institute (RDRBI) and in collaboration with the Titleist Performance Institute, we have tested and developed this patented training protocol which increases rotational strength and speed. Upon order you will receive written protocol along with instructional video sent via server. Within weeks you will be throwing harder and swinging faster.


Most users say it takes about 4-6 weeks to see clear, tangible and often dramatic results. 

This requires work and dedication. The 10-15 minute workout needs to be done 3 times a week for 1-2 months to see the results.

Why it works: it’s about balanced strength

By balancing accelerator and decelerator muscles, you increase speed and reduce the risk of injury.

In the conditioning world, the common approach is to address the muscles that accelerate the body. Yet little or no time is spent addressing the decelerator muscles. This leaves a void. No matter how strong the accelerator muscles are, if they’re not balanced with decelerator muscle strength, increased speed is impossible without risk of injury. The brain’s own self-protecting governor will inhibit action that could lead to injury. As a result, swing speed is inhibited.

However, if the body can improve it’s BALANCED strength the brain will allow for faster motion without fear of injury. So how do we address balanced strength? Every athlete that uses the Velocity Bats™ will swing them so that they activate and strengthen both accelerator AND decelerator muscles used in the swing. After testing various weights, we calibrated our heavy Velocity Bat™ to maximize strength without compromising speed.

Nerves vs. Muscle

Match strength with speed that will translate to your own bat!

The second piece of the “speed puzzle” is training the nerves to fire the muscles faster than they’ve been conditioned to move. Baseball is a sport of repetition. The more reps you do at a certain speed, the more the brain conditions itself to maintain that speed. In order to override that conditioning, athletes must force themselves to move faster than they’ve been trained to move.

To do this, athletes swing the light Velocity Bat™ as fast as they can in various cross-specific ways. This allows the brain to accommodate moving at speeds not possible with a standard bat. Over time, the brain allows an increased threshold for speed, firing the nerves faster and moving the bat quicker. This, along with increased balanced strength, translates into faster, sustainable swing speeds without additional “effort”.  This requires work and dedication. The 10-15 minute workout needs to be done 3 times a week for 1-2 months to see the results.

Will this affect my swing or pitching mechanics?

​No. This IS NOT skill work. This protocol should be part of your regular workout schedule. 2KT compliments work you do in a gym for stability, mobility and flexibility.
